Tony Ferguson talks week in Las Vegas following shootings

Tony Ferguson gives Split Decision MMA Podcast a quick interview before weigh ins for his bout at UFC 216 against Kevin Lee.

Dodge and Joey cover the latest developments in Vegas and how the mood is, the beef for his belt he likes the most and his videos on social media.

This Saturday night Tony Ferguson will meet Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC 216 to determine who will walk away with the UFC interim lightweight title. Tragedy struck in Las Vegas on Sunday when lone gunman Stephen Paddock killed 58 concertgoers and injured more than 500.

Despite the worst shooting in modern American history taking place, the UFC organization will move forward with the pay-per-view event in Las Vegas less than a week later. But, even with the UFC’s decision to continue on, the main event might have almost been cancelled as Ferguson’s family almost found themselves in the line of fire. Luckily they are safe and unharmed, however if they were injured or worse, Ferguson would have likely removed himself from the card to be with his family during their time of need.

#TeamPterodactyl is hot this week.
